The purpose of this study was to identify the physiological demands and distance covered during national competitive 2016. Method used 9 female players including 2 backs, 3 halves, 4 forwards. Data was collected by measuring heart rate, blood lactate, distance covered and time spent walking/running. Data was analysed using mean, standard deviation, and range. Results found that the mean heart rate and blood lactate concentration during warm up were 96,4±12,7 bpm and 1,7±0,8 mmol•L-1; at the end of the first half of the match was 171,2±6,3 bpm and 5,2±3,1 mmol•L-1; prior to start at the second half was 130,8±3,8 bpm and 3,7±3,6 mmol•L-1; and the end of the second half was 157,4±12,7 bpm and 5,8±0,2 mmol•L-1. A mean of total distance covered during the complete field hockey game was 4372,5±263,9 m. Mean value of time spent walking and running were 41,42 minutes and 28,18 minutes, respectively. Conclusion of this study was female field hockey players have lower heart rate, blood lactate concentration, distance covered and time spent walking/running than other players in the literature reviews. Implication of this study can be used to evaluate the training program in order to improve performance enhancement of the players.
